The second yoga session will be focused on Untitled by artist Kendall Buster. Buster describes her sculptures as “drawings in space”, referring to the open armature design that permits people to see through the structures. The grouping of chambers allows visitors to enter the sculpture and experience feelings of both confinement and security. This public art project was funded by Bell Atlantic (Verizon).

This class is in coordination with Courthouse 2.0: Reimagining the Civic, a public art initiative aimed at sparking public conversation about the future Courthouse Square by exploring the interaction between civic space and civic life in Arlington in the twenty-first century.
